Prior to demolition and recycling, a close inspection
of the ship will be made paying close attention to raw and other
materials and equipment on board with a positive value.
For a complete picture it is also necessary to check
for dangerous material. When this process is completed the initial
value of the vessel will be determined.
DETERMINE ITS WORTH
At the end of the day a process of dismantling and recycling a ship remains a commercial business. The materials that get salvaged will be processed into workable raw materials. Profits made selling these raw materials will be deducted from demolition costs and any profits left will be offered to the owner of the ship. Fluctuating prices for raw materials can influence the final outcome..
The actual demolition of a ship takes place in 's-Gravendeel. All salvaged raw- and other materials will be treated, removed and processed, if possible reduced to a smaller size and stored on our recycing yard.
The processed materials will be sold to costumers. Unusable and dangerous materials will be removed and offered to specialised recycling companies. Workable processed materials will be sold to traders.more
